I arrived in Australia about 3 weeks ago, and am now looking for accomodation in Sydney or Wollongong. Is there anyone out there who wants to share a flat/room? I'm pretty easy as to where it is, although I've heard cogee, maroubra, bondi is nice. I have also considered working and living in Wollongong as it's a bit smaller and there are good beaches there. Ultimately I'm looking for a small place that isn't too expensive. And of course a fun and friendly bunch of flatmates!
Merry christmas to all you travellers!

There are a couple of websites I used to find accommodation. Plenty on there and the places you mentioned are all nice. I'm living in Maroubra myself and it's fairly cheap as it's 30 mins from the city centre but is a nice place. When they're not rioting of course ;)

Good luck

Maroubra, like any beach suburb in Sydney, has relatively wealthy residents that live and own their house, and less wealthy people that rent there. So, beach suburbs tend to attract a mixed lot, but Maroubra is a safe suburb, but I'd go for Bondi or Bronte/Tamarama if I was you. I wouldn't bother with Wollongong, but that's just my opinion.

Check out for rentals properties in Sydney and share places too.
